Traffic on Corkscrew Road – Traveling East Corkscrew Road. Is it Safer?

Traffic on Corkscrew Road – Traveling East Corkscrew Road. Is it Safer?

East Corkscrew Road had improvements in 2014/2015 to help with traffic, but it was not enough. Lee County Department of Transportation (LDOT) collaborated with the developer as the Wild Blue Estero, FL development was planned and approved. LDOT required the Wild Blue east entrance to line up with Bella Terra Blvd.

In 2018, with road impact fees, LDOT installed a traffic signal at Bella Terra Blvd and Corkscrew Road. In April 2021, East Corkscrew Road widening, Phase I (Ben Hill Griffin to the east border of Bella Terra) started. As the Rivercreek development was planned and approved, working with LDOT, their entrance was aligned with the west entrance of Wild Blue. In 2023, the Rivercreek developer, GL Homes, worked with LDOT to fund a traffic signal. There is still hope the Wild Blue community will pay their fair share, as the warrants are not there for LDOT to fund a traffic signal.

Planning Zoning Design Board Meeting

February 13 @ 4:30 pm EST

Agendas are posted the week prior to the meeting. Council meetings are open to the public.

The Village Planning, Zoning and Design Board will discuss several important matters at its next meeting.

These meetings are an opportunity for residents to learn more about growth, development, and zoning changes within Estero and to voice questions, concerns, and comments on these topics.

Among the items to be discussed

  • A public meeting about the Woodfield mixed-use development, proposed to be build on 46 vacant acres at US 41 and Coconut Road, which would include 296 housing units and 20,000 square feet for commercial use.
  • An application for development of 10 townhomes, making up 2 buildings, as part of the larger Downtown Estero development project located east of US 41 and north of Broadway East. In total, the 34-acre project would include 310 multiple-family units and approximately 30,000 square feet for commercial use.
  • A zoning amendment for several properties on Via Coconut Road to reduce the proposed residential building footprint, modify parking locations and reduce two buildings to two stories.
